Biographical history

Rosser United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Rosser since 1925. Its predecessors were Rosser Methodist Church and Rosser Presbyterian Church, which entered into a Local Union in 1917. The Methodist church continued to be used after Union until 1953, while the Presbyterian property was sold in 1929. In 1925, Rosser and Grosse Isle formed a pastoral charge. For several years after Union, student ministers served Rosser United Church only in the summer. In 1930, Rosser joined with Grosse Isle and Warren to form the Warren - Rosser Pastoral charge and were given an ordained minister. In 1937, Meadow Lea was added to the charge. The last service to be held in the former Methodist Church was in June of 1953. A new church was built on the site of the former residence of E.E. Price and was dedicated on June 19, 1955. The old church was sold and moved to Grosse Isle, but the pews and organs were used in the new church. The original organ was donated to the Red Sucker Lake Indian Reservation after a new one was bought in 1960. A memorial park was created behind the church in 1970 using funds donated in memory of friends and family. The park has gradually been expanded through the years. The Warren - Rosser charge began being served by two part - time ministers in 1997, who split up the charge. Under this arrangement, Rosser worshipped with Grosse Isle. At the time of description, Rosser is part of the Warren-Rosser Pastoral Charge with Warren, Grosse Isle, and Meadow Lea.
